Kroll on track offers enhanced search capabilities for Microsoft® SharePoint®

Conceptual search extension to yield more relevant search results and increase productivity among business users

Minneapolis – July 10, 2007 – Kroll Ontrack, the industry’s largest provider of electronic and paper-based document discovery and computer forensic services, today announced Engenium® Search Extension for Microsoft® SharePoint® Server 2007, designed to provide SharePoint users with conceptual search capabilities, thereby helping to produce high quality relevant search results . The product, previewed today at Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, is targeted for public release in the third quarter of 2007.

The Engenium Search SharePoint Extension enables SharePoint users to conduct easier and faster searches, by incorporating a full spectrum of search capabilities beyond keyword searches. Specifically, conceptual search enhancements to the software platform allow users to retrieve information based on meaning, not just keyword matching. Key benefits include: faster searches, more precise and intelligent results, and fewer non-relevant hits.

“In a knowledge economy, competitive advantage is driven by the ability to make better, faster and more informed decisions ,” said Dave Chaplin, vice president of advanced search technologies for Kroll Ontrack . “According to a recent IDC report, many companies are annually losing $20k per worker in lost productivity searching for the right information . Microsoft SharePoint has rapidly become an enterprise knowledge management platform and Engenium Search SharePoint Extension will bring more intelligent information access to the SharePoint community.”
